Bookbinding: Concertina Style!

(In partnership with the Society of Bookbinders, North West and North Wales Region)

10.15-4.00; tea/coffee on arrival from 10am for a prompt start at 10.15am

In this one day workshop you will work with an experienced local bookbinder, Barry Clark, to create four books: two simple no sew / no glue booklets, and two more substantial books, all in the concertina or accordion style. We will fold long strips of strong paper to make the pages into a continuous concertina. These folded pages are bound within hard covers, either as separate panels front and back, or as a more conventional cloth-covered case with a spine - we will make both versions. It’s a very versatile structure favoured by many book artists. All materials and tools will be provided. We will be using glue so please bring a protective apron. The fee includes the cost of materials, tea/coffee on arrival and a light lunch. This workshop is limited to 12 participants so early booking is advised.
